I admit it’s an odd question but I was just wondering if everyone usually poops in the morning but if there are people who poop in the afternoon or early evening I wonder if they sleep better at night.
I seem to be stuck in a pattern where I will poop at around 7am most days but by the time nighttime comes my bowels are full and I usually wake at like 2am feeling constipated and don’t sleep well the rest of the night.
I wonder if I can retrain my bowels to go in the afternoon or early evening so that I will sleep better at night. If I sleep well my sz symptoms and inflammation are way better the next day.
Seems to make a lot of sense in my case. I can check the difference with my Fitbit to see if I will average more hours of sleep over a months time. I can take Miralax and more dietary fiber to stimulate my bowels during afternoons to help establish a new (and hopefully better) pattern.
It’s way TMI !.. 165555555555
But I’ll answer your post since I know you are a valued member.
I usually go everyday in the mornings around 11am or in the early afternoons around noon.
Although I haven’t been regular the last couple of days
Why not both? I poop when I wake up, and again in the evening.
I just poop when I feel like it
Plus way to much information man
TMI post, lmao.
But, usually whenever I’ve had coffee (which is often morning and late afternoon to early evening).
And here I thought literally everything had been discussed here up until now. I poop whenever the urge comes.
Well here goes…(pun intended)
If I have coffee then in the morning.
If not, then usually a while after eating lunch.
I had my gallbladder removed a few years ago and only just recently gotten to where I can go only 1 time a day. For a few years it was always right after i ate. When you don’t have a gallbladder the fluid is constantly released into your digestive tract…the gall fluid is basically lubricant for your intestines. When you eat more is released so everything moves faster.
I… I think maybe you should ask your gp? They are more equipped to deal with this kind of issue.
Idk, maybe try and go before you go to bed?
You can’t rely on Miralax every day. I don’t know if it would work to train your body into going at a different time. Maybe there are foods you can cut out or add that will help you go?
Before Latuda I went after most meals. Now I only go in the morning when I wake up.
Sleep is really important. I hope you can get it figured out.
Hey guess what? I just woke up jk
Coffee does it for me too.
You aren’t going to sell my information to the evening news are you?
I usually go in the evening but sometimes I go out in which case I eat to much or too greasy food and sometimes need to go earlier in the day but not always like sometimes Tim Hortons or McDonalds. Seriously.
I’m an AM shitter
But can pop one out in the evening too if my bowels so desire
Can we please change the subject? This is grossing me out. Can we have a discourse on the consistency and color of snot and pus instead?
Get blueberries a cup full of them and you’ll poop easy
Every morning, after coffee
I poop 2-5 times a day, usually once in the morning and twice in the evening!
I heard that ideally, you should poop as many time as you eat throughout the day.
So 3 meals = 3 poops.
Thanks everyone! I didn’t realize there was so much variation in this (ahem) area and my apologies to grossing anyone out.
I wonder if there have ever been studies showing if morning defecators have more problems with constipation, have higher inflammation markers and/or possibly poorer sleep quality. I do think it’s another good knob for me to tweak on my sz radio lol.
